A thin picket fence can allow those who pass your house to have a little peek into your garden but thanks to its pointed look it remains a boundary that protects your space! A large house can give the impression that it’s looming over the low picket fence making it appear even smaller than it is. Color-coordinated with a fence on the porch this white picket fence contrasts the house with its short height!
It is locally sourced granite glass and wood that shapes the open and inviting holiday home. The living area kitchen and dining flow into one end of the private courtyard with the natural structure of the house and large overhangs creating sheltered verandahs.
Transition between each of these spaces and the outdoor deck is seamless and fluid allowing the homeowners to enjoy an uninhibited and cheerful living environment. Cantilevered verandahs offer ample shade and keep out direct sunlight while vivacious dining table chairs and furniture bring color to the interior.
The courtyard sits at the heart of the house and a ventilation duct on the second floor brings in light and natural breeze. While hitting the house is gently drawn into the courtyard it is the slightly curved outward roof of the south side that directs the air outside. This also helps in cooling the house naturally on less boisterous days!
A gourmet kitchen open dining area and spacious sitting zone flow onto the deck outside and blur the traditional indoor-outdoor boundary. A restrained color scheme ensures that focus remains firmly on the use of diverse finishes.
A unique feature of the house is its distinctive pitched roof and polygon façade that were largely determined by the slope of the site local building norms and a desire of the homeowners to combine privacy with unabated views.
Maybe it’s the traditional design or the bright white color but these fences are definitely held in high regards by many people! Their simplicity is captivating and it’s no wonder many homeowners see them as the ultimate dream! A home with a dark exterior will wonderfully contrast the white fence contributing to a balanced setting that is but a monochrome backdrop for the greens growing in the yard.
